Anesthesia Errors Due to New York Medical Malpractice: Albany Medical Malpractice Lawyer


When New York Medical Malpractice Results in Anesthesia Errors, Call our Albany Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Anesthesia errors are just some of the most dangerous types of New York medical malpractice.  This is because anesthesia is a very potent cocktail of drugs which are meant to paralyze, block all pain, and render a patient unconscious.  This is a very powerful combination and very dangerous when done improperly or when done in a manner which is likely to result in serious personal injury.  Most of the time these types of anesthesia errors are completely avoidable with the proper and competent healthcare that a healthcare professional must provide.

But when this does not occur, New York medical malpractice and anesthesia errors can result in permanent and debilitating personal injuries and even wrongful death.  Some common types of personal injuries from an anesthesia error include the following:

  • Peripheral neuropathy (damage to nerves in fingers, hands, toes, and feet);
  • Brain damage (due to oxygen deprivation, brain bleeds increasing pressure in the brain, or due to incubation errors);
  • Permanent damage to the IV site;
  • Vision damage, including serious loss of vision;
  • Sensation damage including loss of taste, hearing, and smell;
  • Damage due to improperly monitoring the patient during the procedure;
  • Wrongful death; and
  • Many other types of injuries.

Victims of anesthesia errors needs to contact an experienced Albany medical malpractice lawyer because these types of cases can be difficult to prove.  This is because it is likely that the defendant anesthesiologist will blame the surgeon, the nursing team, a CRNA, technicians, and the hospital.  Not only does this result in a shifting of liability and a lot of parties to confuse a jury, but this also means each party will each have a defense lawyer!  You will need a medical malpractice lawyer that can fight back 4 or 5 or more defense lawyers and who will not be intimidated.
